Hi guys, my name is Lincoln and I am the super fans of Steve Paul jobs so there is no doubt that I got lots of Apple product like Mac, iPod, iPhone, etc. In the past 5 years I’ve used Apple product and there are some problems came up on my devices. In order to bring you the convenience in using the Apple product, I set this site as the place where you can get all of my experience in dealing the problem such as what to do to get back Mac files (or any other devices’ files) by using the so called data recovery software for Mac OS when you meet the file loss situation (this is also suitable for the iPhone or iPod, etc.), how to back up your valuable photos, videos or songs. At the same time, I also will offer you the good way about jailbreak .
All of these I will show you in the next few articles. Now without further ado, let’s get into lesson one, may be the most important one-what the fxxk do the machine (your Mac, iPhone, iPod and so on) can no longer find the files.
The Situation for Losing Files and Chance of Recovery
Anyone of you, just like me, sooner or later will meet the file loss. Some of you will give up to find ways to get the files back, some of you may search the ways to make the recovery happen but seems did not work. So, what is the really cause make your files gone? Here I will share my experience no matter you are using Mac OS, iPhone, iPod or any other Apple device. Check it out.
File corruption is a fair occurrence on Mac that mostly occurs because of damage to the file header. Some Mac data recovery software will recover such files without fixing any corruption, so you still cannot open files after performing recovery and regain access to your data.
When your volumes do not mount, there are minimal chances of recovering data. The only case when you can perform recovery is that the software recognizes your physical Mac disk. In this case, you can search lost volumes or perform Raw Recovery to reclaim your inaccessible files.
Due to media formatting or reformatting, the operating system loses index entries corresponding to all the stored files on the drive. However, if you do not use your affected drive, there is a good chance of performing complete data recovery for Mac (or for the devices) with this software.
Minimum use of the affected storage media increases the likelihood of recovering complete Mac data even after facing data loss. If you continue using your Mac after the disaster and your data gets overwritten, you cannot undelete files using Data Recovery software for Mac.
Wiped Hard Drive
Disk wiping erases all sensitive information on your hard drive beyond the scope of recovery by any data recovery program. If wiping involves multiple passes, then you are doomed to face complete data loss.
Here the file corruption, formatted media and overwritten are also the causes of iPhone, iPod file loss. So take the note here, take care of using your device and don’t take any action on your device until you find the ways to get back files or you will lose them forever though you got the most powerful data recovery for Mac software. But there are always some careless users (just like myself) in the world. So here we strongly recommend the method: Backup.
Backing Up Your Files to Avoid File Loss
Talk about the backup, many of you will think it is easy to do but when you go to operate by yourself, you may feel there is no start, so do I at the beginning. At first I just know use a storage device to save the files, may be the Mac can use this way, but how about the iPhone? It cannot be read by the computer as an USB drive. Now let’s talk about it.
Storage Device for Mac Back Up
Let’s begin with the easy way first: Mac files back up. There nothing difficult, find a storage device which has enough space to save all of your files which are stored on your Mac. Connect it with your Mac, copy your files, open your device, and paste your files. Isn’t it easy for you? OK, finish.
iPhone/iPod Series/iPad Back Up
This seems a little bit difficult for lots of user, so I will show you the detail here.
1. ) iCloud Back Up
iCloud automatically backs up the most important data on your device using iOS 5 or later. After you have enabled Backup on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage, it will run on a daily basis as long as your device is:
Connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi
Connected to a power source
You can also back up manually whenever your device is connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi by choosing Back Up Now from Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
2. ) iTunes Back Up
iTunes can create backups of your iOS device when you:
Sync with iTunes (disabled if you have iCloud backup turned on)
Right-click (or Control-click) the iOS device in iTunes under Devices and choose Back Up
Use these steps to manually back up your iOS device using iTunes:
Connect your iOS device to a computer with the latest version of iTunes installed.
Click the File menu and select Devices > Back up.
To verify that the backup finished successfully, open iTunes Preferences and select the Devices tab. The name of the device will appear along with the date and time the backup was created.
So these are what I’ve got. I know may be this article is not so detailed to explain the tips you want to learn, but take it easy, as I mention above I will take a couple of articles in this site to offer you all information like data recovery for Mac or jailbreak I’ve got during the years I used Apple product.
